Cricket phone store at night

I’d like to try taking more photos at night. Usually my nighttime photos turn out kind of green, like this one of a runner in night fog that I took several years ago. But last night when I was stopped at a traffic light on my way home from work, I decided to try capturing the pretty green glow from the phone store’s windows. I liked it. The building colors were pretty true, and the only green was the lighting around the windows, which is supposed to be there! So not bad for my first deliberate foray into “night photography.” Opportunistic though it was. That is, very seldom do I “deliberately” do anything with photography. Mostly it happens when I’m just going about my day and all of a sudden “see” a picture in front of me. Sadly I don’t have the equipment needed to capture truly decent nighttime images. But I can still try whenever I see something cool. And then someday when I have time I’ll work on getting better tools😄

  1. Looks pretty darned good to me! Did you notice the red light on the stop light, too! Your instincts are better than a lot of people’s planned efforts!!

    I love this picture. Reminds me of city scapes that I’ve seen in paintings. Like NightHawks by Hopper or Early Sunday Morning by Hopper. I love those paintings and this is so much the same feel as those. Well done!

    I like this image. It’s amazing what catches our photographic eye. I can personally say what we see and what the camera eye sees is a toss up in results. What I see in your photo? I cut the top part of your photo off under the window sash so the streetlight glare doesn’t appear at the top. The green lights pop more with tiny bits of the it’s complementary showing. Image reminds me of the painter Hopper.
